Notes / Commercial Description:
This original Leipzig beer specialty lends us the name for our brewery. Gose is a regional beer specialty that was brought to Saxony-Anhalt in the year 1738. Originally Gose comes from Goslar, a small town in Lower Saxony, and the river “Gose” in this town. This beer specialty has a refreshing, slightly sour taste and is ideal for quenching your thirst. Gose is brewed with the additional ingredients lactic acid, cilantro, and salt. Gose is a top-fermented beer with 4.5% ABV and 10.8% wort. You can enjoy it in different variations.

12 oz bottle poured into a pilsener glass

A- A clear golden color with a two finger white head.

S- Wheat, beard, an almost citrus like tartness, a tea like herbal quality. Not overwhelming, I am finding this to be unique and inviting.

T- Wheat/beard, tart fruits, hints of earthy spices, touch of lactic acid in the finish nicely balanced with a hint of salt, taste really lingers on the plate with a nice tart lemon flavor.

M- Smooth, crisp, light body.

O- This is the first beer I have tried in this style and I find it very enjoyable. This is a very easy drinking beer. I can't wait to have more!

First Gose for me. Expected more coriander. Appearance looked like a standard lager but very little head, no lace. Decent golden color with a lot of carbonation action. As mentioned didn't pick up any coriander in the aroma (and taste). The salt was not noticeable in the flavor but found in the aftertaste. Similar to the salt-flavor-aftertaste you get after sipping a margarita. The mouthfeel was originally very lively but I didn't pound the beer and after sitting 10 min or so, it quickly came across almost flat. It was refreshing at first, then became more interesting than sessionable. I don't have any other Gose reference so I attempted to be fair in evaluating.
